College student looking for noise reducing, circumaural, comfortable, and around $100 headphones...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I am looking to buy a new pair of headphones.  I was wondering if anyone could recommend a pair using the information I have provided below?  

 

The most important things are:  

Comfortable (I am going to be wearing these for 3-5 hours non stop…)

They need to reduce noise (without music being played)

They need to be circumaural.  


 

I am a college student that is looking for

(must have)

circumaural headphone,

that reduce noise while studying,

I can wear for hours on end without them hurting my head or ears (I have a large ish head.  I am a guy),

are around $100,

well build so I will not break them within weeks of normal use,

 

(would like)

have a inline mike,

removable cord,

easy to carry around.

 

The thing I care about least is audio quality.  Right now I am using a $5 pair of running headphones to get around campus, and a pair of $40 razer gaming headphones to use while on my computer…  

 

When I do listen to music, lately I have been listening to modern rock (imagine dragons ect...).

 

I would love any and all recommendations!

 

Thank you so much for reading this!  Also I hope I posted this in the right place… Kinda new here :)

 

Peter

Hi Peter, there are a few threads already created for newbies (noobs) so you may want to try a few keyword searches. In the beginner threads, you may get more responses. If you can find them on sale, the Logitech UE6000 can run around $100 and I think it will meet all of your requirements. I have a pair and and it is my go to headphone when I travel. It has good noise isolation, even without activating the noise cancellation (helps on airplanes, trains,etc.)

Wow!  Those look amazing!  They have all the features I am looking for, and the price is not too bad!  Also a friend of a friend has those and I just got to try them on.  I love them!  I am going to be getting a pair as soon as I can.  

 

Thank you so much for your recommendation!

 

Thank you MalVeauX as well for your post!

I just remembered I briefly had the Philips Uptowns, as suggested by MalVeauX. Those were very comfortable and sounded pretty good, although the midbass tended to overwhelm vocals. I don't think they had removable cables, but they are quite good and inexpensive.
